AAA Cards - #87 Shiny Spring

Well Spring is certainly well established here in the UK and our clocks have now changed over to summer time which means longer days and lighter evenings - yay! So AAA Cards new challenge that starts today is right on point.

The theme is Spring with an optional twist of something shiny and I was thinking sunshine, flowers and the hedgerows greening up when I created my card

The background mat was created using Uniko's halftone block stamp and some bright happy colours. I then stamped and added a little colour to the blooms and handcut them out.

I combined a couple of sentiment words from different sets and added a coat of wink of stella for my shiny element.

Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks Halftone, Flower Power #4, Simply Said 
Inks: SU cucmber crush; Brusho, yellow, turquiose
Die: MFT Dienamics, double stitched rectangle stax
Pro marker: tulip yellow 
Wink of Stella, clear

Now I know the rest of the AAA Cards DT have some superb Spring cards to share with you - one of the perks of being on the DT is that I get to see and drool over all their amazing creations before the posts go live. Check them all out here. We've also got the super talented Trina from  mycraftingcloset guesting with us this fortnight and there's a gift certificate from Happy Little Stampers to be won.

Thanks for visiting today, I always love that you find time to drop by my blog.  And keep crafting!
